INDIAN COSTUME AND HABITS. The warriors and the sqnaws of the Texas tribes dress quite alike. A practised eye only can tell the difference b tween them at a short distance. The squaws can. generally, use the bow and arrow with proficiency. At the bat- tle of Plum Creek, a man shot a squaw by mis- take, and called out to his comrades, "By hea- vens, ain't I thinning them!*' He was well laughed at for the misdirected shot. Among the Comanches a fed-haired person was formerly a great cariosity. When they made a prisoner of Col. Carnes, they thought his hair was dyed. The women took him to a stream, and did their be...

The legislature. The present legislature is composed man of remarkably sober and mor- al habits, so far as can be judged by tbeir deportment up to the present time. Among them are many strong advo- cares of temperance. The most exciting matter likely to engage their attention, is the Pacific Railroad. Three different companies are represented, having in view the same point upon ihe Rio Grande. The Vicksburg company wish to select a route ronniug near the 32d degree of latitude through the State. Those in favor of the Fulton road are willing to connect with any line passing near 32 but wish to have their own choice in selecting the tapping point. Some of ihem favor Fort Graham, on the Bra- zos, othets prefer the Trinity. ^The Opelousas company has its friends, who, we believe, are advocat- ing the propriety of crossing the Sa- bine below 32, ind making a connec- tion with the direct road at the most el:gible point.

He had staled when upa few moments ago, that wh^n that report should come up, be would move to lay the bill upon the tafete. to be acted upon after receiving this information from the Anjutant Ge- neral. The House would then have some data to go on. It would be known very nearly how much land would be requisite, and that would have a con- siderable bearing upon the adoption or rejection of the report. He was there- fore opposed to postponing to Monday, and hoped the motion would not pre- vail, because it would lead eventually to killing bill. MR.
